With play on day four of the event near Osaka abandoned, Kennedy was able to hold on to his one shot 54 hole lead and win over Sung Joon Park while Kennedy's fellow Australian Aaron Townsend was alone in 4th position.
Kennedy' win, worth A$100,000 in this lesser purse event on the Japan Golf Tour, climbs him to 11th on the 2013 Japan Golf Tour money list.
It was Kennedy's second victory in Japan after his Mizuno Open win last year
Townsend's third round of 66 was the best of the day and moved him to 82nd on the money list as he chases a place inside the top 70 if he is to regain his playing rights there.
